Enterprise Bank Announces Plans to Open Its 19th Branch Office in Pelham

submitted by Enterprise Bank CEO Jack Clancy has announced that Enterprise Bank will further expand into Southern New Hampshire with the establishment of the bank’s 19th branch in Pelham. The new 3,200 square-foot facility, located at 139 Bridge Street, will be a full-service branch office with ample parking, a two-lane drive-up and ATM, and ample office space for a skilled team of local banking professionals to provide deposit, lending, investment, and insurance services. Enterprise is currently in the process of pursuing all regulatory approvals and according to Clancy, “We are very excited about this opportunity and we anticipate being able to open our doors in mid spring 2012.” Clancy commented that, “We are very fortunate to have a number of customers and employees who call Pelham home. Our new Pelham location is conveniently located seven miles from our Salem office and four miles from our Dracut, MA, office and is a natural extension of our branch network. In addition to serving the financial needs of the Pelham residents, businesses, and professionals, we look forward to becoming an active supporter of the civic and charitable

endeavors of the community.”

Established in 1989 and headquartered in Lowell, MA, Enterprise Bank has 18 full-service branch offices located in the Massachusetts cities and towns of Lowell, Acton, Andover, Billerica, Chelmsford, Dracut, Fitchburg, Leominster, Methuen, Tewksbury, and Westford, and the New Hampshire communities of Derry, Hudson, and Salem. As of March 31, assets were posted at $1.43 billion. Total assets, investment assets under management, and mortgage loans serviced totaled $2.0 billion.

In 2010, Enterprise Bank was recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work in America” by the Great Places to Work Institute. In addition, Enterprise Bank was the recipient of the Corporate Philanthropy Award from Boston Business Journal, recognizing Enterprise as the number-one business in the region for employee volunteer hours in the community. Enterprise Bank and Trust Company is listed on the NASDAQ Global Market under the stock symbol “EBTC.” For further information on Enterprise Bank, log on to our Website at

School Board Commends Outgoing Superintendent

by Barbara O’Brien With less than two months left to serve as superintendent of

School Administrative Unit (SAU) 28, Dr. Franklyn Bass took some time, recently, to thank those with whom he has worked for the past four years. In return, his colleagues in Windham took the opportunity, during their May 3 School Board meeting, to express their appreciation for his energy and foresight. SAU 28 includes both the Windham and Pelham School Districts. At the end of April, Bass informed both the Pelham and Windham

School Boards of his decision to leave SAU 28 at the conclusion of the 2010-2011 school year. After completing the current school year with SAU 28 on June 30, he will head northwest to Hanover, NH, where he will take over the reins of superintendent for SAU 70, which includes Hanover, NH, and Norwich, VT. During the recent Windham School Board meeting, Bass said he “couldn’t be more thrilled with the four years he spent in SAU 28,” adding that “Windham is all about providing the best education to its students. I can’t say enough good things about the administrative core.”

Bass also commented on the tremendous support shown by the public in Windham. “They have been just great,” he said. Appreciation was also expressed to all those who served as School Board members during Bass’ tenure as superintendent. Special recognition was also given to the Windham High School students who have served as representatives to the Windham School Board during the past two years. The new high school began operations in September 2009, certainly the largest project to come to fruition during the years Bass worked at SAU 28. Referring to the high school representatives, Bass expressed his pride in their participation and input, stating that he was not aware of any other school district in New Hampshire that listened so closely to the opinions of its students.

As for the next step in his career, Bass said he is “looking forward

to many new challenges.” Windham School Board Chairman Ed Gallagher recognized Dr. Bass for his “unselfishness,” saying that “Frank gives with all his heart and soul. He has been a good partner with the School Board.” Windham School Board member Jeff Bostic referred to Bass’ departure from SAU 28 “not as an ending, but another beginning.” Commenting that SAU 70 has similarities to SAU 28, Bostic said he is looking forward to collaboration with administrators from the

Hanover area. Windham School Board member Michelle Farrell thanked Bass for the “many wonderful things he contributed to the new high school.” School Board member Stephanie Wimmer commented on Bass’ “incredible energy.” She also spoke about the “phenomenal faculty in place at Windham High School;” staff who are ready and able to continue providing an excellent education to students during the interim, while the search for a new superintendent is launched. Christine Carpenter, the Windham School Board’s high school representative, spoke about Bass’ “genuine concern for the students.” “Dr. Bass has been on an unending mission to take things to a higher level” for the Windham School District, she said. Bass said that he does plan to attend the very first Windham High School graduation ceremony in June 2012. Currently, there is no senior class at the new high school, as the grade levels have been phased in over the past two years.

It is anticipated that the full

SAU 28 School Board will meet next on Monday, May 23, and will discuss the steps to take to secure a replacement for superintendent. Choices could include hiring an interim superintendent to fill in while the search for a permanent replacement is ongoing or one of the two assistant superintendents could be given the nod, either temporarily or permanently. School Board members said they were unable to comment on the process at this juncture.


Outdoors with


White-Tailed Fawns

Though white-tailed fawns seen hiding in the grass may look abandoned and very much alone, they usually are not, and New Hampshire Fish & Game urges the public not to approach, touch, feed, or move them. Contact with a human may harm the animal more than help it.

Whitetails are a “hider” species, which means the female will hide her fawn in vegetation during the first two or three weeks of its life as she feeds. Spotted and lacking scent, fawns are well- camouflaged and usually remain undetected by predators. The doe will return to the fawn several times a day to nurse and clean it, staying only a few minutes each time before leaving again to seek food. A human may never see the doe and think the fawn needs help or food. But staying away is a better option. The fawn is well- equipped to protect itself. By the time it is five days old, already it can outrun a human. At three to six weeks of age, fawns can escape most predators. Unless a fawn is in imminent danger, for example, under attack

by dogs or injured in a tractor mowing accident, the best decision always is to leave it alone. If you are concerned about the fawn, leave the area and come back to check on the fawn the next day.

a fawn is in the exact location when you check on it the following day and bleating loudly, or if a fawn is lying beside a dead doe (likely at the side of a highway), do not take the fawn into your possession. Contact the police.
